    Highly trusted sports radio talk show host???

    Somehow the Mad Dog has been along for the ride for almost 20 years on New York sports talk radio. Now he is an 'author.' The Mad Dog can be good for comic relief but I can't believe anyone ever 'trusts' or even seriously cares about his opinion on movies, books or even sports. More power to him for his magic carpet ride, but almost any sports fan could 'write' this book.

    Top 10 Lists

    Chris Russo is truly the best in the business. His impeccable memory and his ability to gauge all players and coaches of all generations and how they compare to eachother is what makes the book a fantastic read. He is more knowledgable than any of the writers/former players who actually have a vote for the Hall of Fame. His crazy sayings like 'Dead as a doornail' and his talking style make it impossible for anyone to forget his voice. Mike Francesa and himself are the top-rated sports talk-show hosts in the country and they keep it fresh everyday. He writes his opinions the same way he would say them on the radio and you almost forget you're reading a book. Chris Russo has the ability to make the viewers watching his radio and television show interested for 5 1/2 hours and he does the same with this book. I fully endorse and recommend this book to ANY sports fan.

    The Dog Rules

    I Read the first book. This takes it to another level. You can argue with his lists and the orders, but it is a great read. Goes in depth with stories and facts about each player/stadium/event. You'll find yourself screaming at the book as you disagree or agree with each position. Highly recommend this to any sports fan. (Unless you're a nascar fan, its not for you.) If you like his show, you'll love the book.

    Luckily I recieved the book for free.

    This is clearly a book about nothing. Mad Dog is using his unique fame as a source to make money. Anyone who buys this book is wasting their money and more importantly their time. I feel ashamed having wasted some of my weekend reading this. Mad Dog leave the Ultimate Rankings in sports to the bars across America and to your show. Mike must be laughing inside about how some of your listeners would actually buy a book written by you.
